It’s time once more for a Review Roundup. Why? Because it’s Saturday! Woo!
As you read this, I’m hanging out with some friends, playing games. Took over a group of favorites, and hopefully will get me a new Guild Ball opponent, too. I also baked brownies, because I can’t go to a friend’s place empty-handed. Hopefully you’re doing something similar, be it at a friend’s place, your garage, or your LGS.
But anyway, I know you’re really here for those reviews.
Today we have: Legends Untold, Mage Wars Academy: Warlock & Priestess Expansions Review, Aggressor: Recon, Shadows of Brimstone, Tambuzi, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle, Kill Doctor Lucky: Deluxe 19.5th Anniversary Edition, Tanks: Panther vs Sherman, Junk Art, Roll Player, and Potion Explosion.
Well, what a week we’ve had, eh?
Lotsa big stuff going on, not least of which is the apparent return of specialty games to GW. I look forward to where that will lead. In the meantime, you can expect a review of the most-recent specialty game from them, Betrayal at Calth, tomorrow. So be sure to check back for that.
In the meantime, though, we have a collection of bite-sized stories to bring you.
Today’s batch includes: Another World Miniatures Releases Maya Miniature, Grand Manoeuvre to publish Nineteenth Century Wargames rules in February, Final Hours for Kill Dr. Lucky On Kickstarter, Warmachine: Tactics Mercenary Warcaster Screenshot previews, Ratgard: Preview of the New Anti-aircraft missile, Kromlech New Release – Plaguelings, Warbears and Stagriders Funded: On to Awesome Stretch Goals, Braille RPG Dice from 64 Oz. Games on Kickstarter, Brigade Models Release New Aeronef Models, and Bring Back Mystery Science Theater 3000 On Kickstarter.
The Kickstarter campaign for Kill Doctor Lucky continues along. They’ve come a long way since the start and are more than 2x funded, getting close to 3x. They’ve got a lot in store, though, in terms of stretch goals. In order to help get there, they’re offering a new game as an add-on. It doesn’t have anything, directly, to do with Kill Doctor Lucky, but the name Deadfall does seem to fit in, thematically.
At my old LGS in St. Louis, I remember seeing the rack of Cheapass Games over to one side of the “game side” of the store (the other half of the store was comic books). Over the years, various people picked up ones and we’d play them as quick games to play in-between games of 40k or Warmachine. They were always really fun and, as one could guess, pretty cheap to buy. Well, now Cheapass Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring out a new, deluxe version of their very first game, Kill Doctor Lucky.
